    Mine had seized in the bushes too - and sheared off when they were removed. New nuts and bolts are probably a dealer only part and they don't cost much. The ones that adjust rear toe are ones at the inner ends of the auxilliary control arms (the short arms that go diagonally forward from the wheel hub).

    The similar nuts and bolts at the inside ends of the lower control arms (the larger arms that run straight towards each other that you can see wheen you look under the back of the car) are used to adjust the camber. They'd seized on mine too so I had them replaced as well.

    If you wanted to replace all 4 sets of nuts and bolts for adjusting the angle of both of the rear wheels, here's what you'd need. Adjust the quantities to suit what you want to change:

    2 x 24422972 - 100mm offset bolts for lower control arm / camber adjustment bolt.
    2 x 24422973 - 85mm offset bolts for auxilliary control arm / toe adjustment bolts.
    4 x 11094488 - nuts, the same for both arms, one required for each of the above bolts.
    4 x 24428132 - offset washers, one for each nut. Not vital but I got some to be safe.

    Check the parts with your dealer to confirm that these are the right ones.

    These were the parts for my car which is a hatch - saloons, estates, and the Signum may be different.

    What you could do is go back and ask him to point out the parts and mark them
    Take the car to a dealership and ask them for the part numbers, they are marked for identification
    Buy the parts, then go back to the alignment outlet and ask them to refit during the alignment

    Cheers mate. Just bought the parts you mentioned. Should do the trick nicely.
